Well actually I've only ever seen a couple epsiodes haha.
But hello. I know I've been gone a month and a lot has gone on around here that I've missed. I don't think I'm going to get the chance to say hello to everyone and comment just yet, maybe this next week, though I make no promises. I guess I'll just say how I've been and that has been stressed. But I'm pretty much done my semester. I have one exam left, my law exam that I never want to study for haha. Other than finishing my semester in which I look back on it, I think it was fun, but would I do it again? HELL NO hahaha it was nice one time around.
Now that I write all this out I realized how much I missed doing this haha, I missed it here. So I'm going to get to the goods. I'm thinking of starting a blog, outside of this one because I realized that I think I may want to do it as a career, I'm still working out the details in my head haha.
Ghost Town by: Rachel Caine: The ninth book in the Morganville Vampires series. This time things get a little crazy. The vampires start to forget everything, and think it’s three years before. Then the humans start to get it too. It’s all up to Claire to set things right in the town, but that isn’t easy when no one remembers who you are. The novel itself was well written, though it had moments where it felt like a teenager decided to write the story instead of the author. It made the story hard to read when the plotlines became cheesy and predictable. But near the end Caine gained points because it was a good ending.
White House Down: When John goes to the White House for a job interview with his daughter Emily, things take sudden turns of events. The job he is applying for is to protect the president, so when attacks on the white house go down, he took it upon himself and with the help of his daughter to prove he can protect the president. The movie had a lot of action in it that made it entertaining to watch. Jamie Foxx as the president was interesting, and Channing Tatum as John gave the movie comic relief even though it wasn’t an all-serious movie. Overall, not the best movie, but not the worst movie on the white house either.
About Time: A British film that takes place in London. The main character Tim learns something about the men in his family on his 21st birthday. They can time travel. As soon as he believes it is true, he starts to time travel for small things. But he soon realizes the small things in life affect the larger things in life, so maybe time travel isn’t all that great. He tries to fix the problems in life, but when he goes back his own life has changed. It was a good romantic movie with great dialog, which made the film have funny moments as well as serious ones. The actors who played in the film played their parts really well. Overall it was a well worthy movie to go see.
Bite Club by: Rachel Caine: The tenth book in the Morganville Vampires series. After so many books you would think it would get boring to read, but it doesn’t. There are your slow plotlines, but overall it really comes together in a great plotline in a new book. In this book we get a new perspective as well. We get in the mind of Claire’s boyfriend Shane. In this novel Shane has signed up, but not on his will to fight the vampires in staged caged matches. This obviously doesn’t go down well, and all of Morganville is concerned. Vampires and humans are all trying to get this to stop. Old characters pop up again, while others die for good, it’s all still very exciting what will happen next.
Perfect by: Ellen Hopkins: Body image, fitting in, acceptance, there is no such thing as perfection. Four teens struggle to find the meaning of perfection and try to reach this idea of perfection, but what they realize by the end is that there may not be this great thing. This novel is almost like a continuation of another book she’s written, Impulse. We learn the other side of a character’s family and friends. It’s an exceptional novel on ideas teens have of this word perfection. This novel was written like all her others in poem formation which makes it easy to read because everything just flows together. Overall it is a really great novel with a really good message.
Catching Fire: The sequel to the Hunger Games trilogy. The movie captures, and represents the book very well, doing the book justice. Katnis and Peeta are back in District 12, now they have to do a tour of all the Districts since they won the Hunger Games. To their surprise winners have to go back to the games to have the ultimate Hunger Games. The movie left it all as a cliffhanger, leaving the audience to wonder what will come next in the final movie. Overall the acting was incredible and the way it was filmed made the plotline move smoothly. The one thing that wasn’t so great was that it was a really long movie; in the middle you felt it’s drag, but once they got into the games it was fast moving. It is definitely worth seeing if you’ve seen the first one.
Legendary by: The Summer Set: The album starts off with Maybe Tonight, which sets up what the album is going to sound like. It’s a very electronic pop album with a lot of beats and catchy hooks. The album is also filled with gang vocals you can scream to. Jukebox (Life Goes On) is an example of a catchy hook. Lightning in a Bottle has both beats and a catchy hook which makes you just want to get up, dance and sing along. Heart on the Floor is a slower song but it still manages to incorporate beats in the chorus, but the verses you can hear the guitar. 7 Days is also a slower song, and has cute lyrics to follow. The album ends with Legendary, which is a combination of all elements on this album, catchy hooks, beats, and cute lyrics. It’s a really good song to close the album singing about being legendary. The best song overall on the album has to be Boomerang that has the cutest lyrics on the album mixing catchy hooks to make you instantly fall in love with it, that is if pop music is your thing. Overall a great album to sing and dance along to!
The Heat: Starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy who are two women in the law enforcement. The two have different ways of approaching the law and when they are forced to work together, they try to make a team. The movie was worth a watch, it had its laugh out loud moments, but the plotline was predictable and you knew where it was going. As much as it had funny moments the rest of the movie was quite boring. Overall the actors worked well together, but it could have been a better, but comedies have a way of all being the same.
Revealed by: P.C & Kristin Cast: The 11th book in the House of Night series. In the past we’ve learned that Neferet is bad, and in this novel she has taken her bad side out on humans. The humans are blaming the vampires at the school of doing it because they believe Neferet is good. A lot of Old Magic is being used to make people angry which doesn’t help the vampires situation. The novel was well written and fast paced because the authors made it interesting to read by not giving everything all away. We have to wait for the next book in the series to find out how this will truly end… or not end.
That's all for me! What's been up with you guys? :)
